united states to be promoting free internet in china and elsewhere. >> one of the things the secretary announced yesterday is that there will be high-level meetings here. >> are you planning anything at the united nations level? >> i would ask you to speak more directly to the chinese foreign ministry's written statement in response to secretary clinton's speech. they said that her insinuation that china restricts access or internet freedom runs contrary to the facts. they asked you not to make such promise accusations. they also said flatly that it is harmful to china-u.s. relations. do you believe this has been harmful to u.s.-china relations? do you have any intention of tempering your criticism on this matter given the unhappiness of the chinese about it? >> the secretary said yesterday that there are a range of places where the u.s. and china have mutual interests. those will be discussed. we will continue to work with them. there are places where we disagree. we will put out a report at the end of the month, at the end of next month on human-rights issues. every year we put the r

of health care in the united states. will you give us your view of what kind of health care the american public has right now, and then let's talk about some of the -- how much it costs us to get, and how many people don't have access. guest: in many ways, we have amazing, cutting edge of health care. we have access to unbelievable technologies, unbelievably well trained people. the same time, you can find some really abysmal health care, with a lack of access in poor communities, cities and neighborhoods, and that is a stark contrast and a major problem we are struggling with. the second major problem we are struggling with is that the pieces don't fit together for any of us. the thing we are struggling with in health reform -- we have focused on the insurance hassles and insurance organization, but we've missed the point that the deepest struggle is with the complexity. science has given us 13,000 diagnoses that we have identified as problems that the human body can sustain, 13,000 ways that the human body can fail, and out of the last century, 6000 drugs, 4000 medical and sur

on how so many bad mortgages could be written in the united states. >> so it is really not a mystery. 80% to value loans. 95, 100, even higher. the second thing is that you have to verify your income with either tax documents or pay stubs, and make sure that the income is there. there is more reliant on fico scores. -- more reliance. you never saw losses in these new products because with the prices going up, people are making money, and in addition to this, i think it is true that there were some bad products. as it turns out, i think option arms were not a great product. i think there were some unscrupulous mortgage salesman and mortgage brokers. there were people buying second and third home, as opposed to a place to live. >> thank you. >> just a quick follow-up on my time, and that is that i mentioned earlier that the fbi made a clear warning. mr. dimon, you indicated in your testimony, i think again today, that most mortgage brokers -- brokerage originated lending from your practice, and you were seeing default rates of two or three times, but did any of you excise these from wh

that barack obama has the right set of goals and policies to be president of the united states? extremely, somewhat, not at all confident? he has gone from december before he took office, 54-45, plus nine, to now minus 22. wow. that is a huge difference. and you see it has been a gradual follow-off since july. so there are growing doubts about obama which are reflected not just in his approval rating, but in a question like this. here is why this is important for the 2010 elections. dating back to even before when i was involved in politics, 1962, what we did is we tracked here the president's job approval rating in midterm elections and then correlated that with the gain or loss in the house of the president's party. so that the box on the right-hand side, when the president's job approval rating is 60-plus, his party generally has a pick up of several shonts. if it is 41, average loss of 41 seats. so what does that tell you about 2010? those who are independent or leaning one way or another, it would be a good time to run a republican campaign, wouldn't it? i mean it is really very inte
